Administration Outlines Foiled Plots

by Mark5019 / September 6, 2006 11:31 PM PDT

Foiled terrorist plots, according to the Director of National Intelligence and President Bush's speech on Wednesday:

- In 2002, officials disrupted a plot by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, to crash hijacked airplanes into targets on the U.S. West Coast.

-In mid-2004, officials discovered a plan to bomb urban targets in the United Kingdom.

-Terrorists involved in a well-advanced plot to attack targets in Karachi, Pakistan, were detained in the spring of 2003.

I think there are more than just those

There was a planned attack on the Brooklyn Bridge. Not sure how far that got; the NYPD may have caught onto it. There was also a planned attack using hijacked planes to hit buildings in Saudi Arabia. That was when the Saudis began to realize they could no longer play both sides.

Unfortunately despite these and any other

revelations, there will be those who complain about our surveillance programs no matter how many plots they foil, just because they do not understand the scope and enormity of the situation.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
